so you are getting some files at least (i was imagining you were getting 100% upload fails).

i'm guessing the specific server you are uploading to isn't responding well for this specific item.

if you want to avoid flash (and unfortunately, progress feedback) you can following the "prefer to not use flash?" link to use a standard form-based
uploader underlying technique.

I just spent all evening trying to upload & half my files had the I/O error that if I had uploading using FTP would never have happened & I would be done by now.. As it is I am expected to go thru this grueling process of selecting files that didn't get uploaded & hope that they make this time?

i wouldn't be too sure about this:

"if I had uploading using FTP would never have happened & I would be done by now.."

when we were using FTP for the uploaders, we got very frequent issues of uploading not working at all -- like 100% failures. we had constant problems maintaining the nearly 1000 ftp servers.

now, down to 1 ftp upload server, we can't handle the upload load of the entire user base.

i won't get into the "we surveyed the other major video and image upload sites for HTTP vs FTP" because i've learned that our patrons either seem to believe in/like HTTP or they don't.

we've had some bugs, most of which we fixed (yours is the only active reporting of errors that i know of right now -- i may be "out of it" but i've been trying to stay on top of uploader issues). hopefully transient server issues won't be plaguing our users (i *personally* have never seen it in all my testing and huge file uploading tests, etc.) so we will try to see if we can get better reliability there...
